Pheasant-tailed Jacana

It's been on my mind a lot recently that I need to try to get a flight shot of a Pheasant-tailed Jacana. With the breeding season in full swing this jacana becomes a feast of colour, note the yellow nape, and the male sports a fantastic tail. It's best seen in flight but I didn't get that shot today. I got these and I think I will come back for more in the near future. The pond is in the Khao Yoi area, Phetchburi province and I went specifically today to try see this bird and get the shot. When I first started birding this was one of my regular stops. Not so surprising with birds like this showing so easily.
